Spring is in the air, and our cheerful suede fringed shoulder bags are a foolproof cure for the winter doldrums! Our friends @dixonrand hand made whimsical chainstitch embroidered flora and fauna patches in their San Diego studio, and we couldn’t resist adding some buzz to a limited group of bags celebrating spring. Bucket shoulder bags are the ideal companion…whether you are commuting or heading to happy hour with friends…and need to carry your essentials in style. These bags are ON SALE in the web shop (link in profile), with complimentary shipping anywhere

Today’s studio shot–channeling ocean breezes as we work on a grouping of summer bags–in shades of cream and blue. As with most things we do, each piece is unique and made from various vintage materials sourced from around the globe. Antique Chinese brocade in shades of indigo blend companionably with European linen and indigenous Pacific Island string bags. Every day is a journey

It’s that time of year–we are beginning production on our patchwork flags–and accepting pre-orders now. With summer approaching, we anticipate longer days, extended weekends, backyard picnics and a slower pace. Few things symbolize this seasonal shift more than the 4th of July and all things patriotic. Memorial Day sets the tone as we unfurl our flags–remembering and honoring those past–slipping into our faded cut-offs, favorite tees and worn flip-flops. Pre-order your vintage flag now as you think about transforming your decor to compliment the season. We offer various themes and color ways, available in our GOODS section of the web shop (link in profile)…and of course, since we make them all one-at-a-time in our studio, we can customize flags to suit your needs🇺🇸
